The Newbury Lions were at the Yattendon and Frilsham Village Fete on the May Bank Holiday with our roundabout.

This traditional fete took place in Yattendon village square and the tithe barn with lots of interesting craft stalls, a nearly new stall and the popular Bric-a-brac stall offering an array of desirable items. Refreshments included a hog roast and barbeque, pimms stall and local ales. Teas, coffee and delicious homemade cakes were served in the village hall. The cake competition this year was the 'Battle of the Sexes'. There were lots of activities for children of all ages including a bouncy castle, welly throwing, china smashing, coconut shy, penalty shoot out, mini golf, and tug of war. Older visitors admired the vintage tractor and car displays as well as Morris dancers and music from the Fiesta Steel Band.
